Released on Queen’s 1991 album Innuendo, “The Show Must Go On” was one of the last recorded by late vocalist Freddie Mercury. With semi-autobiographical lyrics chronicling Mercury’s struggles with the illness that would claim his life only ten months after the album on which it appeared was released, the track rose as high as #40 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart. It was produced by Queen and David Richards and recorded at Metropolis Studios in London and Mountain Studios in Montreux, Switzerland.
